Short-necked Skink (Trachylepis brevicollis)
I saw this type of skink only once, and as you can tell it was too shy to come out of the foliage for my camera. It was near the dining area at Finch Hatton's tented camp, lurking in a bed of planted flowers along the walkway. In size and shape it was nearly identical to the very common African Striped Skink, but its pattern was quite different.

Many thanks to Dr. Robert Drewes for identifying this skink.
